Migrate from UPower to Logind for suspend/hibernate

Registered by Iain Lane on 2013-04-24

At http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/devkit-devel/2013-January/001339.html we can see that UPower upstream plan to remove support for suspend/hibernate from UPower in 1.0 (already deprecated in 0.9.20 but patched out in Ubuntu). Since we are enabling logind, and it provides this functionality, we can take this opportunity to reduce the complexity in our stack by migrating to using logind for this.

Whiteboard

Need list of packages which use this functionality. As with ConsoleKit, dependencies of the D-Bus API will often not be declared.

Another option is to stick with 0.9.x, which is maintained for now as it's shipped in RHEL.
